A video of paint drying in the hands of Gondry would be fantastic. The guy is a genius.

Maybe they have another chance to go with the Everlong director again.
From what I remember, they really wanted Gondry (who had an "insane" idea for These Days), but he's the one who wasn't able to do it in the end

I'm sure they'd love to work with him again, it's probably more a question of whether he's available

Video just been on Mtv rocks here in the uk. It's a live video. My gripe with it is that the audience is very quiet in it.

Funny, that ventsmagazine website is the only source for it getting a release - every Friday Music Week do a round-up of the next few weeks upcoming singles & it still hasn’t appeared on it.

I'm wondering if it wasn't a mistake somehow - how does it makes sense to have an official release date for a song that's already on rotation on the radio? Heard it again this morning on Radio X.

Unless it's meant to be released for the US.

Guy on reddit is saying it'll be on US radio on April 17th - https://redd.it/82b46k

Which would be right on time for the first run of shows in the US. So who knows. "Singles" are so sketchy these days, not like the old days with a solid release date, physical release, new video etc. It's all a jumble with airplay in different countries and whenever/if they do a video.

C list, which translates to 8-10 plays across the week. I suppose that’s probably right due to the fact it’s from a 6month old album and they’re not over here to play in support of it.

Sounds right to me - other territories prob have at least some certainty of the upcoming likelihood and are starting to play it anyway - same reasons, album IS 6 months old but can't ignore band as they are big and still touring / or even coming back this year.

You simply can't be everywhere at once (obviously) so things cool places you aren't - for media anyway if not for expectant fans. Tour cycle predicates promos of some kind HAVE to happen for 2nd US leg - so a new "single" (such as that is these days as you say) has to happen in the next month or so.

This page cites Sony Music Italy as having released 'The Line' a few days ago. Colour me confused.

(Update: Seems to be the case, as there's a radio edit Italian stations have put into rotation.)
